Far Cry: New Dawn System Requirements

One month before the official release, Ubisoft announces the Far Cry: New Dawn system requirements for those who wish to play the PC version of the video game.

The release was made on ubisoft.com; so in case you wonder if your rig can run Far Cry: New Dawn, make sure you check the system requirements below.

As you can notice, the PC system specs for Far Cry: New Dawn are quite similar to those for Far Cry 5; which means that if you played the previous installment, you will most likely be able to play the new Far Cry.

Far Cry: New Dawn was announced at The Game Awards 2018. The video game is set seventeen years after Far Cry 5, and a narrative sequel to the previous title.

You’ll return to Hope County after a nuclear disaster, and you’ll try to rebuild the community, keeping it safe from Mickey and Lou; the twin sisters who are the game’s antagonists.

According to Ubisoft, in Far Cry: New Dawn you’ll meet some familiar faces and you’ll also find out what happened to the Deputy and Joseph Seed from Far Cry 5.

Now, let’s see how your rig should look like, in order to be able to run FC: New Dawn.
